Top 3 Online Marketplaces for the Artisans and Crafties

If you have a gift of creativity, why not turn a hobby into a an earning opportunity?  Whether it’s jewelry making, poetry, arts & crafts – every creative talent has a place in the business world.  Thanks to the power of internet, you can now sell your masterpiece online to people from all over the world.  It’s every artist’s dream to share their creations but it’s even better if you can make money out your passion.

So here are my top 3 websites to get you started with your online business:

Etsy

This e-commerce site is really popular among hobbyists and professional merchants alike.  It’s focused on handmade or vintage goods and supplies.  Making an account is free but it requires a listing fee of only $0.20 USD for each item that you want to sell.  Another 3.5% fee is again deducted once the sale is completed on the site.

Society6

This is a site specifically for artists and designers.  You can upload your work directly to the site and it will automatically be available in different formats, including art prints, phone cases, clocks, mugs, shirts, pillowcases and more.  When you sell a product, the company will produce, package and ship it for you and take a portion of the sale at the same time.

Zibbet

If you want a website that offers a free account without listing or sale fee, then this is the site for you.  This site is exclusively for handmade items and not for mass-produced items.  As soon as you sign up for a seller’s account, you get to have your own customizable stand-alone website and a store within Zibbet’s marketplace.  Also, if you are already an existing Etsy seller, you can easily switch your listings to the site through a handy tool.
